I'm working on four skins for Spad XIII.
If I didn't want to make them because Czechoslovak pilots were flying on them. I'd let it be. The model is cut. Each side of the fuselage is differently long. The back of the hull also has a different length.

This is completely repainted. Three hours of work. And it still looks as if a bunch of stepping donkeys have stepped on the plane.

About 50% of the required work is done.

Here more info about the 7 schwaben on http://www.buddecke.de/jasta65.htm  and a sparse picture of the opposite site of the fuselage.  btw I think that purple color near the cockpit is actually  lozegen  camouflage.


It is possible, I took the color from the instructions of model D.VII by Eduard

The one who exchanged the honor for flying




Ernst Udet (26 April 1896 – 17 November 1941) was a German pilot during World War I and a Luftwaffe Colonel-General (Generaloberst) during World War II.

Udet joined the Imperial German Air Service at the age of 19, and eventually became a notable flying ace of World War I, scoring 62 confirmed victories by the end of his life. The highest scoring German fighter pilot to survive that war, and the second-highest scoring after Manfred von Richthofen, his commander in the Flying Circus, Udet rose to become a squadron commander under Richthofen, and later under Hermann Göring. Udet spent the 1920s and early 1930s as a stunt pilot, international barnstormer, light aircraft manufacturer, and playboy.
